has anybody encountered seized shocks? i ran my car about a month ago and was packing it up to move when i discovered that three of the four shocks are seized.. i have traced the problem to either the pistons have swelled or the bodies have shrunk.. obviously the latter being unlikely... regardless, you can barely push the shafts in or out, they are that stuck... any ideas?

its probably your orings especially if you spray your shocks with motor spray this will swell the orings then your shocks wont work just my opinion

Parts corner at Rypers got mine! - one big hit broke a rear arm and both front sway-bar mounts (the extension bit off the main arms). Used those front arms for the rest of the day though!

Ouch... sounds like a pretty hard hit there! I got the car with additional front and rear arms, so if there is ever a need I'll have them!! Do you come up to race at all? I was thinking of one day heading down there for a hack...

Have any of you had trouble with your chassis being lower at the edges than the front and rear? It's almost as if it's slightly bent in a "U" shape. The car doesn't feel tweaked, but it's definitely sitting lower around the sides.

Was looking at my car just now, and took out the verniers and ride height gauges to measure it... Nope... same all around. I measured it on a setup board and a piece of glass just to be sure. What surface are you measuring on?
